Life has been busy with the launch of Phase III of Star Wars: The High Republic recently, so I thought I’d use today’s post to point you in the direction of some of the interviews and other delights that have come out over the last few weeks, including this cool new trailer:
So onto all that news…
First up, Charles Soule, Justina Ireland, George Mann and yours truly were interviewed by the Star Wars Underground Network back at San Diego Comic Con, the interview only having just been released.
Elsewhere on the Star Wars website you can find:
- An intro to The High Republic for those just discovering it.
- A quiz to find out which High Republic Jedi you should invite over for Life Day. (I got Vernestra Rwoh!)
- A craft project to make an Ember bookmark.
- A rundown of some of the new heroes of Phase III.
- New looks for some of our Phase I heroes (and villains!)
- Stellan Gios’ lightsaber came to Disney Parks and immediately sold out on ShopDisney US!
- And an introduction to just some of our new Phase III villains (including Baron Boolan!)
Oh, and in case you didn’t see it, George swung by this newsletter to share his choices for a Perfect Sunday this last weekend too!
Young Jedi Adventures
Away from Phase III, I’ve also been doing the rounds to talk about my work on Young Jedi Adventures, specifically my episode Charhound Chase.
Arezou Amin interviewed me and fellow writer Katie Kaniewski about introducing characters from the books into the animated series.
Katie and I were also interviewed by Kelly Knox on the official Star Wars website along with showrunner Michael Olson (the interview revealed which character I’d love to see get their own little spin-off!)
Phew! I think that’s everything at the moment (although away from Star Wars, CBR did highlight my Deadpool / Living Mummy story in Marvel’s Crypt of Shadows!)
That’s all for now, except for a couple of coming attractions@
On 14th December, Bristol Bad Film Club will be showing the new documentary: A Disturbance in the Force - How the Star Wars Holiday Special Happened.
As well as the big screen showing, Bad Movie Bible author Rob Hill will be giving a talk on some of the greatest (and weirdest) Star Wars rip-offs and I’ll be giving an exclusive reading from the Star Wars: Life Day Treasury.
And don’t forget that Lucasfilm Publishing’s Creative Director Michael Siglain will be joining members of this newsletter’s paid tier for a video hangout this coming Thursday! Make sure you subscribe to attend!
Hope to see you there!
